Call for Papers: AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples
AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples is a multidisciplinary, internationally peer-reviewed journal published quarterly. It aims to present indigenous worldviews from native indigenous perspectives. It is dedicated to the analysis and dissemination of native indigenous knowledge that uniquely belongs to cultural, traditional, tribal and aboriginal peoples as well as first nations, from around the world.
AlterNative publishes papers that substantively address and critically engage with indigenous issues from a scholarly indigenous viewpoint. All papers must address and engage with current international and national literature and academic and/or indigenous theory and make a significant contribution to the field of indigenous studies. Submissions responding to this general call for papers should relate to one or more of themes of the journal—origins, place, peoples, community, culture, history, heritage, colonialism, power, intervention, development and self-determination.
